Wish someone would tell my missus that. Bloody woman thing my arse, she hasn't cleaned the damn things once yet, and the chickens are actually hers, technically speaking. Granted, the ducks are my mess, but don't see why I should clean the chickens when she made me get stupid fluffy things instead of egg machines. :lol:

Oh, and both dogs are also technically hers, as are the cats and the tortoise. The bearded dragon is the only animal I actually wanted that we currently have. And the ducks also.

The chances of my o/h going in the shed to clean is zero. When I had an operation on my foot my dad had to come and do the daily and weekly scrub out and he's 80 bless him. That was because I was going to put the said foot in a plastic bag! The thought of all that muck yukkkkkkkk I really couldn't leave it more than a day not nice :(

I already have had the conversation about me cleaning "my" hens. And the dog being "technically" mine.

And he wants to name one of the hens....I DON'T think so! [-X

I just wanted a proper dog (Dogue de bordeaux) and reptiles. It's the missus who wants all the fluffy cuddly stuff, like cats, lap dogs, chickens, kids, etc.

She wants a pygmy goat as well, ffs! :lol:

Granted, they are for my pet, but they are the cleanest animals we have. And very efficient recyclers. :lol:

Not nearly as bad as crickets when I was breeding them, they smell foul after a few days.
